Here, hold my beer
I have this feeling that if the very last human being to ever die is a male, his last words and thus the final words of our once-promising species will be some variant of "Hey, watch this!"
Of course, if he is the final member of the species, there remains the question: "To whom is he saying this?"
Similarly: Frederic Brown's short story Knock, which begins like this:
The last man on earth sat alone in a room. There was a knock on the door.
